The No Good Very Bad Day(s)

Wow-wee. It’s strange how much one event can effect so many other things throughout the day. Yesterday I woke up just like any other day. I got myself ready for work, made some lunch and packed up my gym bag. It was the day after a big snow storm, and I was frustrated as I…

Rubber Checks and Beersteins

I’ve been in Albany a week and working at Merit for three days, and I’m finding myself to be a little bit better adjusted, just as I thought. Much like my scattered brain, this post will be a bit scattered, because a few interesting things happened today, and none are completely related. The first big…

Product Review: FitBit Flex

A few weeks ago my mother called me asking if I had heard of the Fitbit. I’ve seen a few friends sport it, and I knew it counted how many steps you took in a day, and how many times at night you’re not sleeping soundly, but I didn’t know much more than that. Just…

Finally, a Mental Breakdown.

Over the past week or so, I’ve told myself that I just need to have a good cry. Ever had that feeling? It’s a nice release of emotion – which I’ve needed lately. I recommend one. Without going into all the details about why I’ve been so emotional (mostly frustration), I will describe what finally…

The Price of Healthyness

Yesterday, my friend asked me how many times a week I go to yoga. I responded, “Twice, because it’s $15 a class, and I can’t spend that much money.” Isn’t that sad? I can’t go to yoga more often because I can’t afford it? I’ve been trying to work on budgeting now that I’m moving…
